Hi, I was born and raised in Alexandria VA and Dale City, VA. I've visited the Outer Banks every year since I was 5 years old. I saved and saved until I found a place that I could call my own. I've put a lot of love over the years into Dream Catcher starting with a new deck, then roof, windows, siding, and a kitchen. I have two children ages 28 and 34. My original plan was to get us all together at the beach for fun family times, that has never really worked out because of busy schedules. I decided to rent my home on VRBO because I saw a benefit of not only the rentals helping with my costs but I enjoy being able to provide a place for families to get away from it all. I am a Mom again to two little toddlers, we come down during off season and when the house isn't rented. It helps me stay on top of keeping the house in shape for you. I really hope you enjoy your stay at Dream Catcher!

La maison est vraiment bien située au bord du canal, barbecue, pêche aux crabes, kayak ( Ride Hatteras Surf Shop vient nous les livrer sur place) , coucher du soleil sur le sound. On va à la plage sur l océan à pied, grosses vagues pour les surfeurs, pratique la douche extérieure de la maison après une bonne baignade, ou pour faire un feu de camp et griller les hotdog et s'mores (mashmallow grillé pris en sandwich entre 2 biscuits et un carré de chocolat). Avon est plus familiale, et plus nature tout en y trouvant tout. On a aussi aimé grimper en haut du phare de Hatteras, prendre le ferry pour Ocracoke, sa magnifique plage et son petit port à l ambiance colorée et aux pelicans. Un seul regret qui nous donne envie de revenir, ne pas avoir pu pêcher un wahoo avec le capitaine buddy.

                                                                  Fantastic spot for our vacation!

The house was beautifully maintained, and the view from the porch can't be beat. It was in the perfect location, and just the right size for two couples. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

What ever your vacation pleasure, you will find it on the island. I am a Northern Virginia native and have traveled to various beaches around the world. My personal feeling is that I am always happy to get back to 'The Island'. I've traveled to Hatteras for 35 years and it remains my favorite. I hope you chose to stay on the island and while here make sure you get out and explore! Safe travels!
